2023 Fort Ticonderoga Fellowships
Fort Ticonderoga has just posted their 2023 Edward W. Pell Graduate Fellowship descriptions. These fellowships run from June 5-August 11, 2023.
Fort Ticonderoga seeks graduate students in museum studies, art history, decorative arts, museum education, public history, history, American studies, or military history. Fellows will need to be self-motivated and able to work independently as well as contribute to a dedicated team to create and develop ground-breaking exhibitions and programs for a diverse audience.
While working individually with their project supervisors, fellows will also meet and work together throughout the two-month experience. Fellows will have an opportunity to work with the Fort’s professional staff as part of a team-approach to all major projects. Professional development opportunities during the fellowships will include visits from outside scholars and field trips. In general, project-specific work will encompass about 75% of the fellow’s time. The remaining half will be taken up with day-to-day tasks in their department, providing a wide-ranging experience working at a historic site and museum.
Details about the Fellowships, including individual position descriptions, are available here.
